Zürich is the largest city in Switzerland, with beautiful Lake Zürich and many other architectural wonders. Fifa World Museum is located right here for football fans. I rather chose to scroll through Toy Museum. If you want to see how toys looked like 300 years ago, just spare some time for it. Quite fascinated with these preserves I decided to pay a visit to a church nearby, and the architecture and carvings were marvellous.
Food and wine, and everything fine – Florence is the birthplace of the Renaissance Movement. Hence, there is no dearth of world-class art, history and tradition in this little town. Its narrow cobbled pathways are reminiscent of romantic Italian movies of the yore, and are perfect for aimless evening strolls with your loved one.

Florence is also famous for its hyper-stylish indigenous fashion being the hometown of world-renowned designers such as Guccio Gucci and Salvatore Ferragamo, you'd find family-run boutiques everywhere.Free things to do while here: San Miniato Al Monte is an eerie but gorgeous church about Piazzale Michelangelo which you should visit.

About Paderno D'adda
You will see some industrial works of hydraulic engineering that were conceived by Leonardo da Vinci. In fact, the Adda is often called “Leonardo’s river” and there is an open air “Ecomuseum Adda di Leonardo” which shows the impressive contributions of the Renaissance polymath, who helped to make the rivers in the area navigable. Along the way you will encounter many stunning examples of the 19th century industrial architecture. Among them the remarkable iron bridge of Paderno built in 1889 without any soldering, all in one span. It connects Paderno and Calusco d’Adda by a road and railway, at 80 meters above the river level.
